AEROSPACE MUSEUM: Three Forces of Interest.

The Philippine Air Force Aerospace Museum in Villamor Air Base, Pasay City was built and dedicated to the “courageous men and women of the Philippine Air Force who made the ultimate sacrifice above and beyond the call of duty in loyal service to their country and the Filipino people.”

Dropping by the Museum on a rainy day did not at all dampen the ‘force in the air’ that came down to just one noble structure. The Museum houses not only the history of Philippine Air Force but includes a collection of various jet engines, air ammunitions, relics, gadgets and everything relevant to our aviation history.

“The Jet Simulator”

The Jet Simulator, probably the most interesting the Museum gives you the [second] best experience of the F-86F Sabre Jet while seated in the jet’s cockpit. A fee of Php 100.00 – Php 150.00 is worth the encounter of this fighting machine.

The Philippine Air Force had over 60 of the Sabre Jet in the 1950’s that made the Philippines a regional power in Souteast Asia. They were also used by the Americans in the Korean War and by our Air Force during the Muslim uprising the south in 1955-1969.

The “Cali Super Pinto”

The proposed first Philippine fighting jet named “Cali Super Pinto” is likewise interesting. It is named after a Philippine bird under the eagle family. Its flight characteristics symbolize the flight qualities of the first indigenous jet trainer and light attack aircraft of the Philippines.

The Philippine Air Force is extending an invite to the private sector to take part in the development and manufacture of this first Philippine Jet.

“The Command Car”

The Command Car may have the best historical value. It serves as the official car of the Commander-in-Chief in any official review of colors by the Armed Forces usually after every President’s inauguration to office.

Visitors are not allowed to have their pictures taken inside the car as a sign of respect to past Presidents.

The Museum is very accessible, parking is not a problem and with an entrance fee of Php 20.00[as of date of date of blog entry], not bad to see the country’s aviation history.

    good evening would like to inform you all a tip on how you can save some money monthly, Getting a conversion
    kit for your vehicle will save you hundreds of dollars on gas by switch to an american made fuel ‘Ethonal’.
    More americans are upgrading their vehicles to support both fuel types and buying ethonal to fill up your vehicle.
    Ethonal is not only an American made fuel, which you’ll be support our economy alot more than buying fuel
    that we have to import making us more depended on foreign supplies.
    Run your vehicle on a e85 Conversion kit
